NYTimes Ad 1This piece is part of our ongoing series about the stunning 1969 New York Times advertising supplement we recently found in the files.

Created by Richard Strand, a student of Art Center College of Design in Pasadena in the 60s, the image above was used to present annual report figures. Hence, the famous Gilbert Stuart portrait of George Washington on the dollar bill, updated a bit with red Salvation Army insignia and epaulets!

Come back for more groovy artwork in future Friday features. And, click here if you’d like to see previous entries which feature the New York Times ad supplement conceived by J. Walter Thompson, created by students at Art Center College of Design, and paid for by generous donors.
